  • Brice Is Simmering For Tar Heels

    February 12, 2014 at 10:02 am

    With a talented and deep pool of players emerging for the Tar Heels, reserves in particular must make the most of their minutes to consistently take the floor. Sophomore forward Brice Johnson has done just that, scoring 10 points with four rebounds (three offensive), three steals and two blocks in Sunday’s 73-62 win over Notre […]

  • The View From The Risers

    Passion, pride and patience … plenty of patience. That’s what it takes to be among “The Risers,” the student cheering section at UNC basketball games at the Smith Center. Just ask UNC students and friends Jane Zorowitz and Marta Case. The pair waited about four hours, mostly in biting cold temperatures on a recent Sunday […]

    Looking for a bright spot when it comes to the Tar Heels poor play of late? Well, there is one (and a big one literally and figuratively, at that) in 6’9″ freshman forward Kennedy Meeks. Meeks scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds in Monday’s disappointing 76-61 loss to Virginia, which dropped the struggling Tar […]

    It’s difficult not to notice that as Leslie McDonald has gone of late, so have the Tar Heels. McDonald, who returned to the lineup on Dec. 18 vs. Texas after missing the first nine games of the regular season for receiving impermissible benefits, had a solid game vs. the Longhorns with 15 points. Like his […]

  • James’ Return Should Bolster Heels On Both Ends Of Court

    January 8, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Setbacks like Sunday’s loss at Wake Forest are surely frustrating for the Tar Heels, but for the most part you can’t blame their defense. UNC has been mostly stellar on that end of the court, holding opponents to just 38.5 percent shooting. That was not the case vs. the Deacs, who knocked down 48.1 percent […]

    Cincinnati is more than just a town known for the Reds, great chili and the comedy classic WKRP, it also happens to boast a very good college football program. UNC will see for itself when it takes on the American Athletic Conference team in the 2013 Belk Bowl on Saturday, December 28th, in Bank of […]

  • “Dome At Last”: My First Visit To The Smith Center

    Despite all the stories he does for Chapelboro.com and WCHL, there’s still only one Matt Oakes. Therefore, when Matt O took off for Charlotte to cover Florida State’s rout over Duke in the ACC title game, Matt P had an opening to report on Saturday’s Tar Heels men’s game vs. UNC-Greensboro. I did not tell […]
